NAME
       pamtooctaveimg - convert a Netpbm image to a GNU Octave image

SYNOPSIS
       pamtooctaveimg [netpbmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pamtooctaveimg	reads	a   Netpbm   image   as   input   and	produces   a  GNU  Octave
       <http://www.octave.org/>  image file as output.

       An Octave image file (called 'Octave's image format' in Octave documentation) is a partic-
       ular kind of Octave data file.  It describes two matrices:

       o      the image itself as a list of indexes into a colormap, and

       o      the corresponding colormap as a list of {red, green, blue} triplets.

       An Octave data file is an ASCII text file that you use to import data to Octave.

       See the
	Image	Processing   chapter   <http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/Image-
       Processing.html#Image-Processing>  of the GNU Octave manual for details.

       pamtooctaveimg writes the output Octave image to Standard Output.

Arguments
       netpbmfile is the name of the file containing the input PNM or PAM image, or - to indicate
       Standard  Input.  If you don't specify netpbmfile, the input is from Standard Input.  pam-
       tooctaveimg converts only the first image in the input stream.

Examples
	  % pamtooctaveimg myimage.ppm > myimage.img
	  % octave
	  > [img,map] = loadimage("myimage.img");

	  # (At this point, img is an X by Y matrix and map is a 3 by M matrix.)

	  > imshow(img,map);   # Displays img with colormap map
	  > [r,g,b] = ind2rgb(img,map);

	  # (r, g, and b are now each X by Y matrices of color levels [0 to 1].)

	  > [newimg,newmap] = rgb2ind(r,b,g);	# Swap the blue and green channels.
	  > saveimage("newimage.ppm", newimg, "ppm", newmap);  # Save as a PPM file.

NOTES
       There is no octavetopam program.  However, GNU Octave's saveimage command can save  images
       in PPM format.

HISTORY
       pamtooctaveimg was new in Netpbm 10.39 (June 2007).
